About the Titanic Color Run
The Titanic Color Run is a great way for people to have a blast while supporting a good cause! Every participant will be running or walking to support the East TN Autism Foundation. The route for the color run starts outside of the Titanic Museum and goes around the surrounding properties and down the Parkway before returning to the Titanic attraction. The Titanic aims to reach a goal of 2,208 runners, each representing a Titanic passenger or crew member aboard the ship. Awards will be given out in the different age categories, and there are even some additional fun awards you can win!
